A compromise has been reached between Korean American seniors and the McDonalds in Queens which had asked the seniors to leave their restaurant because it feared they were squeezing out other customers.
The Queens Courier reports the owner has agreed to hire Korean speaking employees and extend from 20 minutes to one hour the time customers are allowed to sit in the restaurant.
A group of about 20 seniors had made the restaurant their hang out and congregated there for as long as eight hours.
Under the agreement, Korean Community Services will transport the group to its community center during the restaurant’s busy hours.
